Dear, that's a long list of things! Here's my personal take: Eiffel Tower: great. You have to go to the second floor, and bring your camera because you'll make fantastic pictures of Paris. Parc Asterix: nice but forgettable. Euro Disney: cool, but crowded, and not always sunny (which can ruin the day if it's raining and cold). Arc de Triomphe: great place. If you visit inside, use the staircase, and take picture of both the intermediate hall inside, and the terrasse atop the structure - great view of several avenues there, do not forget to bring your camera. Gardens of Monet at Giverny: a gorgeous place with a really quaint house, and fantastic flowers/vegetation. Giverny is a small town outside Paris. The gardens are well maintained, and it's really a pleasure to stroll around. Louvre: You won't have time to visit the entire museum. You'll enter through the glass pyramid, in itself a point of interest. When inside the pyramid, take a photo of the inverted tip of the pyramid. You can also take photos of the foundations of the old city ramparts (13th century). Inside the museum, you may not take photos. I hope you'll be able to visit the sculpture galleries, and the Egyptian and Greek antiquity galleries. There are so many things to see, it's overwhelming. Orsay museum: it's not on your list but if you have any possibility to see this, it's "the" place to see impressionist paintings. Other points of interest: please ask your teacher to visit the Ile St Louis (St Louis Island) -- firstly because that's an interesting place, and secondly because this is the home of Berthillon (famous ice cream maker) -- you don't want to miss the opportunity to taste one of their fruit sorbets. Shopping: If you have a bit of pocket money, you'll want to shop. Avoid the large expensive department stores (Printemps, Galeries Lafayette, Bon Marché), and the money traps (Champs Elysées avenue, for instance). Rather, try to shop on Rue de Rennes and in the neighboring streets of the St Sulpice metro station. This is a student area, and the shops there cater to this type of clients (and their thin wallets). Though shopkeepers don't really like to bargain, they will if your offer is reasonable: -10% is very doable most of the time. If you go in June, this is the sales season and you'll get great discounts. Host families: can be perfect, can be dreadful. Depending on your host family. Write them ahead of your trip. Make friends with them. Don't impose on them, or they may resent it (i.e. don't require to do this, and do that, and this, and that, etc.). Rather, ask them what in their opinion you should absolutely do in Paris. They'll be glad to advise, and if they are really cool, they will prepare your trip with you and make sure you have a positive opinion of them and of Paris. I wish you a great visit, and great time, and loads of fun!

You do not give the type of business, is it an SA, SARL, SF, EL or EURL? SA = PLC Public Limited Company SARL = Limited Liability Company SF = Trust Company EL = Self-Employed EURL = Sole Trader Without knowing that it is difficult to answer question. Please e-mail me then I can point you in the right direction.

Katriona Originally Answered: The course of the imperialism in France?
Foundations of a second French colonial empire were laid between 1830 and 1870, when Louis Philippe's forces penetrated Algeria and Napoleon III's seized Cochin China in Southeast Asia. Along with other European powers, France rode the post-1870 wave of new imperialism. By 1914, France had amassed an empire incorporating over 10,000,000 km2 (4,000,000 mi2) and 60 million people. In Southeast Asia the French pieced together the colony of Indochina by 1893, adding Laos, Cambodia (now Kampuchea), Annam, and Tonkin to Cochin China. Tunisia and Morocco became protectorates. France's vast African empire also included French Equatorial Africa, French West Africa, French Somaliland (now Djibouti), and the islands of Madagascar and the Comoros. Political motives for this overseas penetration varied from the search for markets, raw materials, investments, and cheap labor to the drive for glory, prestige, strategic advantage, and manpower. Prominent, too, was the mission civilisatrice, the urge to implant Roman Catholicism and French culture. Governance of the empire followed two patterns, sometimes intertwined: assimilation and association. Where there prevailed long traditions of organized political life and a common culture, the French tended to rule indirectly through existing local authorities, as in Tunisia and Morocco. In less structured societies like those of West Africa, the French imposed direct rule and attempted to assimilate the populace. More than the British, the French intermixed with the indigenous population. The British, on the other hand, were more wont to prepare some colonies for autonomy or independence. French colonial imperialism survived World War I, but World War II led to its reorganization as the French Union, and finally to its dissolution — primarily as the result of the wars in Indochina and Algeria. oday, the remnants of France's control in lands beyond her border consist primarily of islands in the Atlantic and Pacific, as well as the former penal colony at Guiana (now used for France's space program). Collectively, these outer fringes of French civilization and government are referred to as "DOM-TOM" — for domaines d'outre-mer and territoires d'outre-mer. Several of these are considered to be official départements of France (Guadeloupe, Guiana, Martinique, and Réunion). In addition — alongside numerous other countries — France has "staked out" small sections of the Antarctic continent and its islands, for scientific research. gatita_63109
